Police Department

The Dalhart Police Department was established in 1902 and is located across the street from City Hall.  The City of Dalhart Police Department is focused on building strong relationships with the community and providing a sense of security everyone deserves.

House Number Display

For your own safety we encourage you to have your house number displayed near your entrance door. Emergency responders, such as emergency medical services (EMS), police department (PD) or fire department need to identify your address quickly and a number painted on the driveway is difficult to see in the dark and not considered effective by emergency responders. We also encourage you to have your number displayed in the alley by your gate for utility maintenance.
